Hypervalent Iodine Mediated Synthesis of <i>C</i>‑2 <i>Deoxy</i> Glycosides and Amino Acid Glycoconjugates

A simple, efficient, and practical method for the synthesis of <i>C</i>-2 <i>deoxy</i>-2-iodo glycoconjugates in self-assembled structures was found using PhI­(OCOR)<sub>2</sub>. 2-Iodo glycoserinyl esters were intramolecularly converted into 2-iodo serinyl glycosides which upon dehalogenation gave <i>C</i>-2 <i>deoxy</i> amino acid glycoconjugates.
